This also raises the question about documentation.
Currently I have the Cygwin/X FAQ and Users Guide in the xserver repository
but I'm thinking about moving it to hw/xwin/doc.

Documentation is very closely bound to the DDX and should live within the
hw/$DDX directory. I'd also vote for keeping the packaging information
close to the DDX and not scatter it all over the tree.

The Cygwin/X stuff currently includes config/cf/cygwin*,
programs/Xserver/hw/xwin, programs/Xserver/GL/windows  and some patches all
over the tree. But the most important parts are available in only a few
places and are easy to review.
